The Company has also arranged a private placement of 8,000,000 flow-through common shares at a price of $0.50 per share to raise gross proceeds of $4,000,000.

In connection with this first tranche closing, the Company paid cash finder's fees of $51,067.50 and issued 114,000 finder's warrants, with each finder's warrant exercisable to purchase one share at a price of $0.50 until December 19, 2013. As a result of the Company having arranged the flow-through private placement detailed below, the balance of the Offering has been reduced from 14,533,206 shares to 5,825,000 shares, and the Company anticipates closing the balance in a second tranche closing on or before January 14, 2013. All common shares issued or to be issued in the Offering will have a hold period in Canada of four months from date of issuance. All common shares issued or to be issued in the United States will be subject to resale restrictions under U.S. federal and state securities laws. The Company may pay a finder's fee in connection with a portion of the second tranche of the Offering equal to 5% of the gross proceeds of that portion of the Offering, payable in cash, plus that number of warrants equal to 5% of the number of common shares sold under that portion of the Offering, with each warrant exercisable to purchase one common share at a price of $0.50 for one year from the closing of the second tranche of the Offering.

All common shares issued in the FT Offering will have a hold period in Canada of four months from the closing of the FT Offering. The Company may pay a finder's fee in connection with the FT Offering equal to 6% of the gross proceeds of that portion of the FT Offering, payable in cash, plus that number of warrants equal to 6% of the number of common shares sold under that portion of the FT Offering, with each warrant exercisable to purchase one common share at a price of $0.55 for one year from the closing of the FT Offering.

For many that’s a good sign, as data has been proven to equal money – IF it’s ingested, integrated, and analyzed fast enough. Without real-ti...
I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.

Early adopters of IoT viewed it mainly as a different term for machine-to-machine connectivity or M2M. This is understandable since a prerequisite for any IoT solution is the ability to collect and aggregate device data, which is most often presented in a dashboard. The problem is that viewing data in a dashboard requires a human to interpret the results and take manual action, which doesn’t scale to the needs of IoT.
